Question: How can I have a good opinion of Allah?
Thank you for your question.
Have a Good Opinion About Allah
Allah Most High says in the Quran,
“And when My servants ask you about Me, I Am near; I answer the call of the caller when he calls on Me. So let them answer Me, and have faith in Me, that they may be rightly guided.” [Quran 2:186]
The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) advised us, “Call on Allah while having the full conviction that He will answer, and realize that Allah does not answer the du’a that proceeds from a heedless, inattentive heart.” [Tirmidhi]
There are different ways Allah may answer one’s prayer, and these are:
2. Warding off the harm that would have otherwise afflicted the person;
3. As gifts stored for the person in the next life, and this is the best form of du’a being answered. [Musnad Ahmad]
Trust Allah In Your Affairs
Know that whatever the outcome, Allah chose what was best for you. Leave the end result to Allah. You did your part by praying for his guidance and forgiveness. You are rewarded for this action.
There is a beautiful tradition that is narrated where the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Whenever a Muslim supplicates for his (Muslim) brother in his absence, the angels say: ‘May the same be for you too.'” [Muslim]
A great scholar named Ibn Ata’illah said, “At any time when Allah loosens your tongue in asking, know well that Allah has willed to give you.”
Allah Is With the Patient
So know dear sister, that Allah is always with you and especially during your tough struggles with your husband for the sake of Allah. “And be steadfast. Allah is with the steadfast.” [Quran 8:46]
May Allah bless you and reward you and facilitate the best of outcomes for you and your loved ones.
Allah knows best.
